Pretty pink flower

Good morning all,
I hope everyone is well. This morning I am bringing you a 2 challenge card.
These two wonderful challenges gave me the perfect excuse to create something with my new ability I have just acquired....
Yes it's a crochet flower!

But more importantly I've attached a broach clip on the back of it. So it not just a greetings card but also a gift. It is held in place by a paper tag that can easily be ripped off without destroying the card.
  • Card - Cream, Pink and Kraft(closest thing I had to Tan)
  • Stamps - WMS Dainty Doillies 2 and Compact sentiments
  • Ink - S.U. Pretty in Pink and Crumb Cake
  • Pearls from stash
  • Crochet flower Broach - 3cm broach clip, 1.75mm crochet hook, DMC Petra 5149(flower) and DMC Pearlescent E966(leaf) PLUS Mom of 5 Daughters how to video (see previous post - crochet how to video)
I aged the edges a little as it just felt right.
I've almost always believed in doing what feels right.

I shall endevour not to bore you all to death with my crocheting escapades....but I can't promise :-)

Hugs
Buffy xx
